Carl Quick's LiteWieght 2240

So for about the last 24 months, I've had her on a serious diet. Now I am happy to report that she lost nearly 13 ounces and is feeling so much better. And let me say one thing, when I pick her up with one hand now she is light as a feather. Well, almost a feather.

Things I have done so far:

OEM main tube was lightened by me.
Barrel is OEM and trimmed down by me.
Main tube plug is made of Delrin by me.
Gas cap is aluminum, comes from HPA and bored out by me.
Hammer is made from Delrin by me with a modified 1701P striker.
Valve is an aluminum Disco rear end with a brass Pro-Top by Anthony.
Trigger grip frame is aluminum by Bluefork Design and then hogged out by Gregg.
Front barrel band is aluminum, made by Anthony, drilled by Rich and milled by me.

Response to Who's Nominated as the "New Jeff Wolgast"? made to produce 50-75fps more. On mine, the probe was sleeved with brass, an o-ring added, and a sleeve of brass on the probe tip (to push pellet in a little further). The transfer port sealed much better. The stock barrels are great if recrowned on both ends and use bushings to support the barrel fully. one in the front and one in the rear and one in the middle. My barrel and shroud has been shortened 1.5 inches as well.

With 10 pumps using a Crosman 14.3 grain pointed pellet the fps is an average of 632.

Next the piston will be made adjustable with a 1377/760 valve end. Would like to see how the larger valve does.
